16 Random Things

A few bloggers are doing this, I saw Fave from Friday’s Favecast do it so, I am going to try my hand at it also.

1. I  was an exchange student to Denmark when I was in High School, I have had a passport since I was 16. It was a wonderful trip, however, I was prepared to go to a spanish speaking country, so now my Danish and Spanish are iffy.

2. I am a big Star Trek fan. I own a Tribble, a Tricorder and other stuff I won’t mention here. If an Away-Team ever breaks out, I can be dressed in 30 minutes. I always play humans.

3. I am a Chiropractic Physician, not a PhD, although I appreciate the compliment. I am also the first woman of color to do hospital Surgical rounds as a Chiropractor. I know how to do manipulation under anesthesia.

4. I love all kinds of music except country. You can find every genre in my iPhone and iPod. I learned to play piano when I was young so I have always loved classical music.

5. If you sit next to me on the plane, I will make you watch my show on my iphone. You have been warned.

6. I had a Quarter Morgan horse when I was 13, named Jumbe. I did not know how to ride before I got him, the horse actually taught me!  He knew a lot of tricks.

7. The Wright Place TV show is not my first show, my first show was called A Healthier You. II\ asked all my doctor friends to be on my show.

8. I was home-schooled until 10th grade in High School. It was not called Home-school back then, and my mother was threatened with police action for taking me out of the school system at 4th grade. I graduated high school at 16 with a diploma.

9. I am not the first person in my family to write a book or produce a film. My maternal grandfather also did those things.

10. I was a Picture of the Week in Jet Magazine  when I was 8 after taking a plane ride by myself from New York to Los Angeles. It helps that my grandfather was west coast editor of Jet at the time.

11.  I was a Stevie Award Nominee in 2004 and NAFE Business of the Year in 2003.

12. When I was named one of the 35 Top Business Leaders of the Year, I brought my parents to the award luncheon, no one else did. I think people could see how young I was. They still gave my parents lunch for free.

13. I have Spina Bifida Oculta- I am very blessed that it really has no impact on my health. It could have resulted in my being crippled. I only found out when I studied my own xrays.

14.  I used to be someone’s imaginary friend- you can read those details here:

I Used to be an Imaginary Friend

15.  I can speak spanish, swahili, a little Danish and a ittle Portuguese and Klingon.

16. My favorite pig out food is Pizza, my mother says its the first word I ever read out loud to her. Grazianos in Fontana or Dominico’s in Pasadena are my favorites.

YOUR TURN??
Tell me somethng good!

 

Book Review of Subliminal Persuasion By Dave Lakhani

I just read Subliminal Persuasion and I have to say for business, it is one of the best books I have read in a while. This has been a good summer for books too! I was surprised to see that Lakhani actually shares some valuable secrets. This is not a reflection on him personally, most books that say they have secrets, and then share the stuff that does not matter or does not work anymore.

 

I hate Guru’s that share the strategies worked in 1902 and pass them off as salvation for your business. So , stop it with the Brooklyn Bridge sales stories already! The reason this book is valuable to Wright Place Viewers is because it will give you an education about advertising,  motivation and why things work. He has a great chapter about Product placement. Product Placement is what made our High Tea Show the best ever this year.  People need to understand why the things in the book work. Many people feel like they are set up to take advantage of product placement opportunities, When they really are not.  Learn about leverage in business with some great examples and action plans to make the information you learned work for you. Learn how branding really works and why it is not about your logo and tag line.

Dave Lakhani

As a Wright Place Viewer, you should be a reader. Seriously, you have to keep up.

 

Investing in books and live seminars will keep you up to date. I highly recommend this book and have also posted a review on Amazon. I appreciate that Lakhani is very upfront and has something to share with you. He does not mince his words, so you if do not wish to be confronted about some of your attitude towards your own business, leave this book alone. It will change how you see yourself, your business and your behavior.
